Areas of Expertise

We offer a friendly, face to face service to accident victims and their families. We know how stressful it can be to bring a claim and we aim to make the process as straightforward as we can.

That said, the law can be complicated and certain kinds of cases have more challenges than others, from a legal point of view. Over the years, we have developed a particular interest and expertise  in cases involving cyclists; if you are injured while riding your bike there may be arguments about whether or not you were partly to blame (contributory negligence) for example if you weren’t wearing a helmet. There could be a dispute over insurance, if you were riding as part of a group when the accident happened. Or a pothole in the road might cause an accident; what are the responsibilities of the Highways Agency?

For many years we have also acted in cases involving serious head injuries. These complex, high value claims must be managed well to ensure that the injured person has enough funds to last the rest of their life. We have recovered millions of pounds in settlements for victims of car accidents over the last 15 years. We understand that you need someone who will listen to you, who will care about your case and won’t use legal jargon.

Sarah Young, Personal Injury Solicitor 


What our clients say:

  • The case concluded as hoped.  I was at all times treated with courtesy, consideration and empathy by Sarah Young who was at all times professional yet approachable in all matters relating to a very complex case. I personally thank her on behalf of myself and children for the way she conducted my case which brought great relief and a most satisfactory conclusion and will help us move forward.

  • I can’t thank you enough for the way the claim was handled. After being in the accident, the thought of making a claim seemed like a lengthy and quite daunting procedure to take on, but you were really helpful and communication was brilliant throughout the whole thing. There was never a point where I felt confused or left in the dark about anything that was unfolding with the claim and the way you handled things was amazing!

  • My claim was handled very professionally and dealt with really well and quickly on Sam’s part I appreciate all that Sam and the team did.

  • My first meeting with Sarah  Young was really great. She seemed to care about my situation and gave good advice on what we should expect throughout our case. My case has now come to an end thanks to Sarah. I would highly recommend her services to others in similar situations.
